ABSTRACT
The article discusses a study from the Avon Longitudinal Study of Parents and Children that suggests that seafood intake limitation for pregnant women may be harmful to the fetus. Results reveal that pregnant women who consumed more seafood have more intelligent children. Low seafood intake was also related to poorer outcomes for prosocial behavior, fine motor skills, communication and social development.
